MEMBERS of the public are being asked by

Cumbria County Council’s Highways department to identify waymarkers and fingerpost directional signs that need repairing.

The local authority is undertaking an inventory of historical road signs to identify those most in need of repair and to assess requirements for their refurbishment.

"With so many of the old-fashioned fingerpost signs across the county, the council is asking members of the public to report their local signs that require refurbishment or repair," said a CCC statement.

This can be done via the CCC website by accessing the ‘report a fault’ link on the highways section of the website, and then selecting the option for ‘road signs.’

People can also call 0300 303 2992 to speak to a highways officer in their local area.
